My daughter is 17 mo now and I am also about 6 1/2 mo pregnant with baby brother or sister. She has been fairly independent for awhile now, but lately she has been really clingy. I love holding her but she wants you to stand up and sway her and my back just can't take it. If I sit down with her then she wants to run around and get into everything that she knows that she isn't supposed to. It is almost like she is regressing. When she is tired she flat out doesn't listen, and throws tantrums over every little thing. We have been battling the tantrums since she was about a year, so that honestly is nothing new. I feel horrible when I have to put her down and she just screams and cries. Is this a stage or has she reallized that she is having a baby brother or sister and is jealous or something?
